From the road, to the air, to your mobile phone, there is always the threat of a potential crash.
Yet in some parts of the world, the road is a lot safer than ever before.
Here are 10 things you need to know about road safety in 2018.
Boring roads are safer than they used to be There are fewer cars on the road in the UK, but in most countries, there are a lot fewer people driving.
Boring roads, or roadways, have always been popular among the public, but the public is getting used to slower speeds.
In 2016, Britain recorded the most miles travelled on a single day with an average of 9.8 million miles per day, according to the British Transport Police (BTP).
Drivers are getting more used to slow speeds, which have also contributed to less crashes.
Slow speeds are also making roads safer.
New figures from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show that for the first time, the number of road casualties in the first two weeks of January was lower than the previous two months.
The number of deaths fell to 2,979, the lowest level since 2014.
Data shows that drivers are more likely to be involved in an accident than they were in 2016, but accidents have been falling over the past three years.
You can still buy a new bike on the cheap with the same bike insurance rates as you do now When you bought your bike, there were two major insurance companies involved.
They were both owned by private companies and, for some, the rates were significantly higher.
If you buy your bike online, you are now covered by a third insurance company.

Cyclists are getting used the best Cyclists are enjoying the benefits of the latest technology.
Cycle UK is the only organisation in the country that offers its customers the option of bike insurance for the new year.
And this bike insurance will keep you covered up to £20,000 for the whole year.

It will also cover you for any accidents.
“If you’re cycling and you hit a stationary vehicle, you’re out of luck,” said Simon Kibbe, Director of Cycle UK. 4.
Cyclist deaths are down from their peak in 2018 According to data from the National Transport Safety Board, cyclist deaths have dropped by over 10 per cent compared to the same time last year.
But the number still remains the highest in 50 years.
“The road safety numbers in the years to 2020 were particularly bad,” said Mark Robinson, chief executive of the National Cycling Campaign.
That year, the average cyclist died by the time they were 24.
There have been a number of other significant drops.
For example, there was an 80 per cent reduction in the number in 2019, and a drop of almost 60 per cent in 2020.
New car prices are starting to drop Car prices are also starting to fall.
According the latest data from Edmunds, the price of a new car in the U.K. fell by £5,400 in January 2018.
But, while the drop may seem small, that is actually a big deal for many car buyers.
Car buyers can save on fuel costs and repairs by buying used.
Buying a used car can be a great way to save money, but you will also need to look after it for a long time.
Cycling is becoming less popular If cycling is becoming a thing of the past, there will be a lot more people who are going to ride on the roads.
More people are taking part in cycling because they want to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with being able to be on the pavement and not worry about crashes.
There are also signs that there are fewer road deaths.
The BTP recorded the lowest number of people killed on the public roads in 2020, at 1,079, and it is down from 3,715 in 2020 – the year before.
The figures show that the number has dropped even further in the last two years.
In the first half of 2019, the BTP reported 6,919 road deaths, down from 9,738 in the same period last year and down by more than 40 per cent.
Cyclism is now officially recognised as a criminal offence in the law The British government has recognised cycling as a legitimate form of transport, so people will be able to face criminal charges for cycling on the streets.
However, cycling is still illegal, meaning people can be prosecuted under the Dangerous Goods Act, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
